On Friday October 14, 2022, a walker alerted the police after discovering the lifeless body of a woman in the Vilberthes pond, in Breteil in Ille-et-Vilaine. Around noon, the corpse of this poor lady was fished out. The gendarmerie, which opened an investigation, had launched an appeal for witnesses to try to find the identity of the deceased woman. Aged about sixty, “the victim is a European woman measuring between 1.50 and 1.55 m”. At the time of the discovery of her body, she was dressed in “dark blue jeans, a thin gray leopard print sweater, a navy blue fleece jacket and silver gray sneakers. She is wearing earrings and a wedding ring. “, specifies the brigade of Montfort-sur-Meu.

If during the weekend no information could help the gendarmerie, it would seem that the identity of the woman has finally been revealed. “The lifeless body was identified by the gendarmes. It would be an 83-year-old woman living in the town. The trail of suicide is privileged”, announced our colleagues from 20 Minutes. “Until yesterday, we had an absence of testimonies. Despite our call for witnesses in the media, we had received nothing. Nothing abnormal since we thought it was a sexagenarian, while she was actually 83,” said Squadron Leader Kenji Sale of the Montfort-sur-Meu Gendarmerie Company.

A couple of walkers recognize the victim

The age difference between the woman’s appearance and her real age was a real difficulty for the gendarmes: “The composite portrait could suggest that it was a man, with a short haircut”. But the gendarmes continued their investigations until they came across a couple of walkers: “On Wednesday October 19, 2022, the gendarmes encountered a couple of walkers who recognized the person in the composite portrait, after looking at him for a second The couple said they knew the deceased woman and walked with her regularly. We then contacted the victim’s two children who were able to confirm that it was indeed their mother.”
